    For the future, I could/can have the tax withdrawn directly from your account after filing each quarter if you want.

    Shouldn't it be can? Or is he making a suggestion?

    Are both okay?

    They are both OK and mean the same.

    "Can" could indicate that he is more sure that it is what you want. "Could" can indicate an option. But in practice, they are the same.
